Audio Sermons : Carter Conlon :  The Journey From Prayer To Obedience

 The Journey From Prayer To Obedience by Carter Conlon

Topic: Obedience
Scripture(s): Esther 3:7-13,Esther 4:13-14,Romans 8:9-11  
Description: (Preached: Feb. 8th, 2004). In a place of complacency, the enemy rose up to try to destroy God's people. After the captivity in Babylon, many of Israel had grown comfortable and stayed, rather than returning. Mixture in the world gives the enemy room to rise up and rule over you. Esther fasted and prayed, but she then had to get up and go to the king. We, as the Body of Christ, need to remember we are ambassadors of Christ, and there is no time for games. Jesus is coming, and we need to come out from among the world, and seperate ourselves for his purposes. If you are struggling with your flesh, this message will help you, and hopefully motivate you. Esther risked her life to intercede for her people. We need to risk whatever will come into our lives whether persecution, or trouble, to be seperated to God's purposes.

 separation isn't legalistic! 
Pastor Carter gives an excellent message about the importance of making a decision to separate ourselves from the world and give ourselves over completely to God for His Purposes. He gives the example of Ester's boldness to count the cost of separation as a cost that outweighs the death and oppression that is before her people. Not being ashamed to stand up and stand apart allows God's hand to move, not so much because we present ourselves as holy or righteous but because the hearts of Kings are in God's hands and He has the power to hand them over to His will through our prayers, separation, and obedience. Separation from this world isn't a legalistic obedience of 'do this but not that' but rather a heart that is determined to follow God's way and not the world's, a heart that doesn't rationalize a mixture of both and falsely believes it has the power of God.
